Pill Drop Box
Safely Dispose of Old Medicine
Our pill drop box is located in the Highlands Police Department Front Office and is accessible, Monday-Friday 8am-6pm and Saturday 9am-5pm.
You can drop off your expired or unused prescription pills no questions asked. Please only bring in capsules or pills. We can NOT accept needles, Epi-pens, liquids, drops, ointments, or non-prescription medication. You may keep the pills or capsules in original pill bottles or dump all into a Ziploc bag to turn in. All medication taken in is burned at an off-site facility.
You can dispose of needles by putting them in a Sharps Container or a hard bottle with a lid and taking them to the County Landfill or a County Disposal Center and giving the container to the attendant on duty.
The chief aims of a Neighborhood Watch program are to report suspicious activity, reduce crime, and increase neighborhood safety. While beginning a Neighborhood Watch Program is not a guarantee of crime reduction, studies show that neighborhoods will experience an average of a 16-percent crime reduction under the protection of a Neighborhood Watch program.
The following links provide information and materials for establishing a Neighborhood Watch Program in your neighborhood. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact the department.
Complaints against officers or the police department shall be accepted, whether made in person, by mail, or over the telephone. Every effort will be made to meet and discuss the complaint in person with the complainant. Complaint Forms are available at the police department.
